As described in a film magazine, Jean Hurst (Terry), a British army officer's wife in India, on the eve of the birth of her child, finds her husband dead, murdered on their doorstep. The child is born a cripple, and is a weakling and coward. Grown to manhood, because of his mother's hatred, David (Morrison) denounces the association of white people in the colony and marries Sarasvati (De La Motte), the goddess of a tribe that plans to overthrow their English rulers. Inheriting an estate and title in England, his mother hopes he will divorce his wife and marry the daughter of an army officer, but he remains steadfast. Learning of the sudden uprising of the native people, he risks his life to warn the British soldiers. When he returns to his bride, he finds that she has sacrificed her life for his.
